Converting unused loft space is one of the easiest and most affordable options for extending your home. Whether you need the extra space for a new bedroom, office setup or self-contained living area, building upwards is frequently the most effective solution.
Loft conversions often have their own unique challenges however, depending on the requirements of each individual project. For a room that you can enjoy for years to come, it’s important that you choose a competent building firm, with the proper skills and knowledge to complete the job professionally.
Whitehead Builders have extensive experience creating beautiful loft conversions, working on homes across Sussex to transform neglected attics into a valuable and inviting room for the whole family.
Loft Conversion Services
We know that every family needs something a little bit different, to meet the unique needs of their home. While most of our customers ask us to handle the entire loft conversion from start to finish, we’re just as happy to complete all the technical structural work to a high quality, for keen DIY-ers to step in to finish the job. Our process is about communicating with every customer to deliver a project exactly as they imagine.
The first step is a no-obligation consultation appointment, where we listen to what you are looking for, and make some suggestions about design possibilities. If you are happy with our suggestions then we’ll get to work creating a plan for your loft conversion, and schedule a time that suits you.
A full conversion service includes:
– Feasibility Survey
– Architectural plans
– Structural support for roof and timbers
– Building and insulating internal walls and floors
– Tank repositioning (if required)
– Velux window installation
– Adding flat or pitched-roof dormers
– Electrics and plumbing
– Stair installation
– Doors, skirting and finishing touches
You may already have technical plans for your loft conversion, or wish to use your own designer. If this is the case, we can provide a cost estimate for completing the work and once you are satisfied with our quote, begin working on the required elements.
Alternatively, our team can make the necessary structural alterations, such as roof timber openings, installing windows and stairs, and making everything watertight, for you to complete the next stages yourself. Our level of service can be entirely tailored to your requirements.
